Police: West Islip Man Killed in Boat Crash in Great South Bay

Christopher Mannino, 39, dies in early morning crash; Dix Hills man faces charge of boating while intoxicated.

A West Islip man was killed in a boat crash on Saturday morning in the Great South Bay, Suffolk Police said.

Christopher Mannino, 39, was one of five people aboard a 1967 38-foot Hatteras when it was struck by a 25-foot skater off Captree Island around 4:50 a.m., police said.

Mannino was thrown into the water and was missing until a police dive team officer recovered his body at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, according to the SCPD.

Brian Andreski, 26, of Dix Hills, the operator of the Skater boat is charged with boating while intoxicated (BWI) following the crash under the Robert Moses Causeway.

Andreski is in the hospital being treated for non-life threatening injuries. He was issued a field appearance ticket for a later date. The one passenger on the skater is also being treated for non-life threatening injuries, police said.

After receiving a distressed call on the radio of the boat crash, Suffolk County Police Marine Bureau units found the skater overturned with Andreski and his passenger in the water, police said.

The Hatteras had begun to sink upon impact. Four people were rescued uninjured from the fishing boat, but Mannino fell into the water during the crash, police said.

Arnold I will re-iterate my earlier comment apparently you can’t read that well or you just choose to put your own sentence together, so before you remark on anyone’s post make sure you’ve read everything or like in this case you may end up sounding like a true idiot…SEE BELOW: In Brian’s case they weren’t (1) no one was ambulatory they were all in the water (2) Brian was unable to breathe into one. (Key Word was WEREN’T) What he was charged with: Not BUI as you put it! Description: "Oper Vessel While Intox 2nd" Before people comment on things THEY THINK THEY KNOW, Maybe you should just go onto Suffolk County Court Site and see for yourself what Brian was Charged with before you make idiotic remarks that show your degree of education and lack of empathy.

To “fuller” Seriously you started again? Come on dude give it up, if you didn’t like what you were reading you would of signed off by now, but it’s obvious by your comments you want to be the center of attention and see what ruckus you can stir up, Really no one cares what you have to say, I’ve never been interested in a morons opinion in the past I’m definitely not going to start now. So do you and everyone on here a favor go bury your head in your sand box.
Baby Girl July 11, 2012 at 04:48 PM
And to “Blogger” for your comment come on really? "Did it ever occur to anyone that maybe they were advised not to?" If it is what people are trying to claim “Accident” just “A Tragedy” There is nothing in the WORLD that would stop me from reaching out to the family especially if I knew I was innocent and had nothing to hide/fear? That’s just me!

You know what baby girl...that is a perfect name because you truly are a baby. I was shocked to find out you had a daughter because the way you speak to people you would think you were no older then a high schooler. My intention is not to stir up drama..I don't like reading this thread bu it is definitely hard to ignore when things being thrown back and 4th are so malicious. I would love nothing more for this to stop,so both families can morn the horrific situation.. I want everyone to just respect each other..the reality of this is.. Noneof us did anything to each other sowe should stop acting like it
Timmy July 11, 2012 at 05:31 PM
These comments are rediculous. I am losing sympathy and respect for baby girl, nicole, friend and whoever else is being nasty and attacking other people through this board. Your are a bunch of keyboard warriors making threats. Grow up! What has happened is absolutely tragic an all your are doing is making it worse. Whether you are wrong or not or brian is guilty or not you people act like a group o immature whiny babies and you need to stop.
THE REAL TRUTH July 11, 2012 at 06:53 PM
Timmy 1st off learn how 2 spell and most of all BRIAN KILLED AN INNOCENT MAN!!!! Also no one is making threats. Would u sit back and act as if nothing happened if it was some1 in your family? I THINK NOT!!!! Baby girl, friend, Nicole I cannot agree with u more.."ARMS UP"
THE REAL TRUTH July 11, 2012 at 06:59 PM
Fuller your very childish. Baby girl keep doing what your doing. Fuller get back 2 reality. This was a tragedy that could of been avoided but due 2 Brian's actions caused the Death of Christopher Mannino
Baby Girl July 11, 2012 at 07:20 PM
Fuller, your level of education and age shows through your words, Yes I am a mother and a very good one at that... As a mother I taught my daughter to take responsibility for her actions may they be good or bad; And for you Timmy... Respect for us? Do you really think that we actually care what you think...waaaaa, waaaaaa Im so upset...lol NOT!
friend July 11, 2012 at 07:29 PM
Wow Timmy your losing respect for me Nicole and Baby Girl and noone that represents Brian. Hmmm wondeer why? But I must say you came a long way from you liking Turtles. And to Blogger it would of be the honarable thing for the Andreski Family to at least send at least a flower arrangement to the funeral home. And to Fuller if you don,t like reading this thread than don't . And as for you saying both families are mourning is totally ridiculous cause their loved one is alive. While Manninos family and friends are truly mourning. That's just wrong to say that. Amazing
No Sympathy July 11, 2012 at 07:31 PM

friend July 11, 2012 at 07:45 PM
No Sympathy have some sort of compassion for Nicole she is mourning the Unexpected death of her brother. Your a mature one calling people savages, your really shouldn't write things that you don't know the meaning of. And that's real classy of you to repost a comment from the Nicole. I would say its shocking but, its really not. What doesn't anybody understand we are all on here because I'll say it again (Brian Andreski got behind the wheel of his boat intoxicated which caused the horrific death of Christopher Mannino.) Which is a FACT !!!!!! And that's something that can't be disputed...
THE REAL TRUTH July 11, 2012 at 07:52 PM
FULLER REALITY CHECK. DO YOU NOT KNOW THE PAIN AND SUFFERING THAT DIRTBAG CAUSED THE MANNINO FAMILU AND FRIENDS. YOU FU***** SCUM. WHY DONT YOU EXPLAIN 2 CHRIS'S 2 LITTLE CHILDREN WHY DADDY ISN'T COMING HOME?? YOU ARE A COMPLETE MORON WITH YOU IDIOTIC COMMENTS!!!!

I NEVER DISPUTED THAT HE GOT BEHIND THE WHEELE...you GUYS ARE SERIOUSLY CRAZY and reading what you want too rather then whats actually there and I NEVER ATTACKED NICOLE--- I actually feel terrible for her and her whole family..its literally insane how horrible of a person you guys are trying to make me out to be.
fuller July 11, 2012 at 08:00 PM
I NEVER THREW A JAB AT BABY GIRL--- SHE TOLD ME TO PUT MY HEAD IN MY SAND BOX WITH OUT ME SAYING ANYTHING TO HER -- I don't know if you guys are reading these threads backwards or what..but YOu guys are nuts .. It's so crazy
friend July 11, 2012 at 08:01 PM
Fuller the post your commenting on was for no sympathy and that's who I directed it to.
fuller July 11, 2012 at 08:02 PM
literally all because i sympathize with Brian to a degree and do not think he is a cold blooded murder but someone who made a horrible mistake that he obviously need to pay for-- i never disputed that by any means or faught anyone on that..speechless
THE REAL TRUTH July 11, 2012 at 08:06 PM
BOTTOM LINE: BRIAN ANDRESKI KILLED CHRISTOPHER MANNINO!!!!! CHRIS WOULD STILL BE HERE TODAY IF IT WASNT 4 BRIAN'S STUPIDITY AND ACTIONS. R.I.P-CHRIS. JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL
fuller July 11, 2012 at 08:06 PM
sorry-- i didn't realize NO sympathy was a person.. i thought you were saying i had none
THE REAL TRUTH July 11, 2012 at 08:45 PM
Listen Fuller every1 has the right 2 speak there minds n how they feel. People grieve in different ways. The bottom line is Chris is no longer with us because of Brian's irresponsible decisions!!
Nicole July 11, 2012 at 09:06 PM
To fuller idk who u are maybe your Brian because in one of ur posts ur talking about how u didnt kill my brother and everyone is belitting u and all that s*it whoever u are ur obviously close to Brians or his family lets get one thing straight BRIAN ANDRESKIE KILLED MY BROTHER ANYWAY U LOOK AT IT DRUNK NOT DRUNK SPEEDING NOT SPEEDING WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE HE KILLED MY BROTHER! Fuller look back at ur posts u called us crazy phychos and savage animals to u im crazy because Brian took the best brother I ever had away from me! To bloggers if they were any type of human (brian or his family) advised to start away or not they should have sent flowers to my brothers funeral or tried to apologize somehow! To timmy I dont need ur sympathy I need my brother home with my family and to no sympathy keep re posting my comment do u think I give a f*ck cause I really don't n I made no threats only promises to u and anyone that defends Brian some of the stuff u guys are posting is just absoultly ridiculous saying he wadnt speeding did u not see the damage done to the boat my brother was on? Saying he wasn't drunk did u not see the news he was arrested for Bui all facts u morons so think whatever u want post whatever u want the truth will come out in court and u will all see that because Brian wanted to have a night of fun n partying it killed an innocent man he killed an innocent man!
Nicole July 11, 2012 at 09:14 PM

Nicole July 11, 2012 at 09:21 PM
All of u are very lucky because I have yet had time to fully grieve when I do is gona be like a tornado I can't even begin to express my emotions because none of you will ever understand until it happens to u!
Nicole July 11, 2012 at 10:07 PM
This is gona be the last post u see from me to all of u defending Brian u will all be in my prayers everyday I hope none of u ever feel the anguish n pain I am feeling!
fuller July 11, 2012 at 10:07 PM
I'm not saying anything more then I am not Brian--and I am not close with him or his family.. It is just a situation that i just feel truly passionate about because of factors and circumstances that are too close too home with in this situation. I am so sorry for your loss nicole. I too have a big brother -- who has on more than one occasion has taken care of me the way you have expressed your brother has. I am sure i love my brother for the same reason why you love yours. I could only tell you the way i feel when i begin to think how i would feel when i start to just imagine, god forbid, if anything happend to my brother. I don't support what Brian did. I don't condone his actions and i don't even disagree that he should be punished. I was just hoping that maybe someone could imagine if it was your brother who was Brian...and that's all. i'm sorry for this back and fourth-- my intention is and never was to hurt anyone by expressing my feelings..I too am just shocked. again I am sorry for your loss
No Sympathy July 11, 2012 at 10:21 PM
